Oso, I'll be updating soon. Been riding a little more instead of writing given the opportunity... go figure.
I'm jumping on a plane tomorrow for a couple weeks of rock and roll fun, and planning on getting to work here on my upcoming forced days off, so much to post, so little time.
The Berg is great!

Yo Chief, Thank you very much! And welcome to ADVrider.com.
Beware this ADV stuff is more addicting than crack.






A few photos from this past week.... there's a new bike in the family for Nancy.
This is gonna get good.

I never have been one to tell a story in proper order.

Years in the music, new media and digital arts industry, and I have come to the conclusion that I missed the memo on how to live. You Sir Roadie, have the plan mastered. Love your reports, images both moving and still and choice in routes.
Subscribed for life. Cheers!

Man this dirt riding is not easy.... Especially these huge mountains Sir Finn takes me on
Sometimes I wonder if he just has a lot of confidence in me or is he really trying to kill me?

One thing is for sure, the little red piggy is so much easier than my 650 GS.... So I will continue to to enjoy every minute of it ... hopefully soon you won't see me on my ass so much

Dirt riding has a bit of a learning curve. I've gone through it myself over the last two years. I started out with a bigger bike (about the size of your GS) and decided it was too big for me. Then got a smaller bike and started really learning how to ride. Now, a couple of trips to Death Valley later, I've gotten a lot better, and I feel like I can better control the bigger bike now.

I have a feeling between your dogged determination and Finn's mentoring you'll get the hang of it real soon.

We like to call your method as 'parking by feel'.

And with much practice, we've all become pretty proficient at it. I've been riding over 30 years, raced for 18 of that, and can't count the number of times that I threw my bike on the ground because it was being bad.

A good crash is better than any e-ticket ride you can imagine. You're the pig, not the chicken in this breakfast, so you might as well enjoy the ride while it lasts.
